Conference featuring former UK MP and human rights activist George Galloway, held in Montreal, Canada at the UQAM on November 17, 2010.
November 17 marks the inaugural stop on George Galloway's 10-city speaking tour of Canada (details http://www.defendfreespeech.ca/schedule.htm). Initially scheduled to tour Canada in March, 2009, Mr. Galloway's speaking tour was cancelled when the Harper government claimed he was a security risk and ineligible to enter Canada.
Forced to sue to clear his name, he was vindicated on September 27, when the Federal Court of Canada found that the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration, Jason Kenney, had engaged in improper and politically-motivated interference with Canada Border Services: “It is clear that the efforts to keep Mr. Galloway out of the country had more to do with antipathy to his political views than with any real concern that he had engaged in terrorism or was a member of a terrorist organization” (http://bit.ly/cKc7nd - paragraph 8). The ruling cleared the way for Galloway to return to Canada.
